Bright and happy for Ashleigh’s goodbye

THE family of Ashleigh Ford have asked mourners to wear bright, happy colours at her funeral on Friday.

The 18-year-old Bundaberg woman drowned at Agnes Water last week.

Miss Ford is survived by her parents, Peter and Vickie, twin sister Taylor and brother Jared.

Her funeral will be at the chapel at Des Allen & Co Funerals, Phoebe Crescent, at 10am Friday. A graveside service at Bundaberg Lawn Cemetery will follow.

In lieu of flowers, the Ford family have asked for donations to Calavos Rural Fire Brigade.

Miss Ford was a volunteer firefighter at the station and a student paramedic.
